La Petite du Musée

I have completed a significant number of commissioned pieces for various Canadian, American and international clients.

In 2012, I was commissioned by The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal’s largest museum and amongst the most prominent in Canada, to do a painting for their 2012 – 2013 school bulletin.

I decided to re-interpret William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s painting Parure des Champs. Using elements such as the crafts young students created during workshops at the Museum, art supplies, a school bag and running shoes; I turned the little girl into ‘La Petite du Musée’.

I also included a Montreal skyline in the distance and, in keeping with my theme from my WANDERLUST exhibit, I painted a sparrow on some spray cans. It’s a typical bird you would see all over urban Montreal.
